The hatchback is perfect since I used to have a Volvo XC wagon and wanted a cargo area.
I leased the car instead of bought because I had reservations about the back window.
I am thankful for the rear backup camera, which is VERY helpful in the dark.
However, on the highway, in the dark, it is hard to see out the back window.
My son pointed out to me that while he was driving it, he liked that the headlights of vehicles behind him were NOT in his eyes, due to the break in the window line.
After considering this, I use my side view mirrors more at night on the highway.
I am considering buying out my lease.
Gas mileage is decent, though not as great as posted, 22 most.
